Default 3 pronged dryer outlet

So I've been convincing myself to go electric and will be slowly assembling the parts. The house we are renting right now has a spare laundry room that is large enough to put my kettles in, but the outlet is a three pronged. Any issues with building the system around that then switching to a four later. Sorry if its ignorant

I'M NOT AN ELECTRICIAN. BUT, being in the Army I move around a lot. My dryer is a newer one and came with a 4 prong cord. Most of the houses that I can afford are older and use a 3 prong. I now own a 3 and a 4 prong and alternate between them every time I move. You may be able to do the same.
